Jarrod Washburn Game Card

Jarrod Washburn was selected for a player card in the SportsNut Fantasy Game insert set in 2003 Upper Deck MVP Baseball.

The cards were part of a subset intended to match sports card collecting with fantasy sports, a first of it's kind. Basically you collect points that could be redeemed for MLB merchandise. Apparently the idea went over very well with collectors. The cards were inserted at a 1:3 ratio. There were 90 different player cards total.

Troy Glaus SN1 and Darin Erstad SN2 are the other Angels in the set.

  1. Fantasy sports continues to be popular. I'm surprised that card companies don't do something like this every year. Or maybe they do, but I'm just out of touch.
